Actress Susie Essman, who plays a ball-busting Jewish wife on Curb Your Enthusiasm, recently went on The View and bashed Hasidic jewish women, calling them not very good dressers and ugly.
Her offensive rant rubbed Rabbi Simcha Weinstein, author of Schtick Shift: Jewish Humor In The 21st Century (Barricade Books), the wrong way, and hes stepping up to defend Hasidic hotties.
He says, Shes dissing my woman! My wife is a total babe! Hasidic women dont dress like Britney Spears does, but they arent ugly. I know Hasidic women dress well because I see my credit card bills.
Weinstein criticizes Essman for biting the hand that feeds her chicken soup, since shes made a good living playing a Jewish woman, and advises her not to throw rocks in glass houses since, Susie Essman is not exactly a looker herself.
